    Hiya, I use something very similar but that is to get some more iodine into my raw food. What are you thinking of using it for Ren?

    I guess my only worry would be using this on top of commercial cat food that doesn't traditionally list the iodine content - though more manufacturers are cottoning on and are making that info available. Excess iodine has been implicated in hyperthyroidism but so has too little iodine. Just cannot win, can you :rolleyes:

    Just wondering if I should use it as a supplement for skin/coat condition. Do you think that salmon oil would be better? I just wondered because of the price :p I am a bit poor at the minute :D

    To be honest, yes, salmon oil would be better because it is a darn sight harder to overdose on fatty acids (though still possible) compared with iodine. Or you could try evening primrose oil, which might or might not be cheaper. However, while it may cost you a little to buy some salmon oil or EPO in capsules, a tub will last you a while!
